Tv Season Info

In an epic showdown, David and his friends battled his demon, ultimately forcing it from David's body. Unfortunately, Farouk found a new host -- Melanie's husband "Oliver Bird" (Jemaine Clement) -- and escaped. Just when they thought they'd earned a moment of respite, a mysterious orb appeared and took David away to an unknown place. With David and Oliver missing and Farouk on the loose, the team forms an unlikely alliance with their former enemy "Clark" (Hamish Linklater) and his well-funded government organization, Division III. Meanwhile, Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) is on a new path to attaining infinite and world-ending power.

Critic Reviews for Legion Season 2

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (14)

But it's a bold vision for a genre where conflict usually boils down to muscular guys beating on each other. And it's what makes this season of Legion among the most subversive television you'll see this year.

Apr 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Legion insists that it has lots to tell us about who we are, but it's worth watching, mainly, to understand what it is.

Apr 4, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a dark, trippy corner of that universe, where time moves more slowly, but it's filled with moments and images you'll find nowhere else.

Apr 3, 2018 | Full Review…

I think it's a doozy. It certainly looked very nice, and the performances were all terrific. As for what actually happened in it? That's less clear.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

It is great news for fans of superhero and fantasy stories in general that there is entertainment as rare as 'Legion' out there. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 18, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Yet Legion shows true growth for the series, providing audiences with an even more uncanny look at the X-Men.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Either way, David going full tilt is an interesting place for the show (however unconvincingly it got there), because it opens up the narrative scope for season 3.

Aug 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Legion may not be the deepest show on television, but it is the most multi-layered, and far and away the most lavish.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Legion has grown from "just" the most visually inventive show on television, to become a brilliant yet terrifying story about what it really means to entrust the fate of the universe in the hands of an unreliable protagonist with unlimited powers.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Legion continues to distinguish itself from its source material through both its underlying themes and it's signature visual style.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

The sophomore installment of Legion is sort of like the Muppet Babies version of David Lynch - perhaps more so than ever before, with a musical dance sequence to rival that of the first.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

The result was a watchable, beautiful, intriguing letdown - a symbolic exercise that lost track of its own meaning at times, settling into a jumble of thematic concepts.

Audience Reviews for Legion: Season 2

    The second instalment of Legion had me worried for a while. The absurdism and pace went up and down a lot. Still good but a clear step down from the first season.
  • Aug 10, 2020
    almost perfect, it drags in some parts, but the reward, a sunrise like you have never seen. unreal

    The season was clearly not as strong as the first. S1 took every bold second to advance the strange plot, but S2 definitely took its time. S1 had 8 episodes while S2 has 11, which I thought meant a longer story, but actually meant more room for "filler", though technically it wasn't. I liked Hawley's idea of experimenting with the genre, but it seemed more fitting as an epilogue or maybe end-credits scenes or just a short YouTube series. Still, LEGION is one of the best shows out there, and I love every minute of its weirdness and beautiful, perfect visuals.

    Keeps on the amazing craziness and creativity!

    Episodul 4 e cea mai buna ora de televiziune cu supereroi dar si restul sezonului rupe
  • Dec 03, 2019
    "Legions" strives to push forward the limits of mainstream television. Even if it is uneven and sometimes fails to deliver satysfaing conclusions, one must admit that it has impeccable sense of aesthetics and narrative.

    Love this series and a great ending to S2!!
  • Oct 02, 2019
    Loved this to the core until the end. The story falls apart for me. Still love this for it's visuals and original story telling!
  • Sep 01, 2019
    A little confusing at times but all comes good and makes sense in the last few episodes. Again some great tv work with astonishing moments that give viewers a new dimension in story telling
  • Aug 24, 2019
    Absolutely genius! One of the best comic book adaptations and most unique and original series you'll ever see.
